It is very important that teams for the 2019-20 competition season are registered by the end of November. That way, we will know how many teams are competing, and then we will be able to set up a schedule. In order to award medals for 6 teams for each event, we must have at least 20 teams registered by the end of November.
The number of schools that will get invitations to the NYS competition is determined by the number of registered teams in that region as a percentage of the total teams registered in NYS as of December 15.
Teams registering after that date up to the deadline of December 31 are eligible to fully participate in the program, but do not count in determining the number of invitations.
Total number of 2020 NYC Div B Invitations is 6!!

The Science Olympiad (SciOly) is a National Competition encompassing true inquiry events. Students are involved not only in the academic fields of biology, chemistry, physics and earth science, but also in the technology behind them. They build vehicles, bridges, roller coasters and more - and in the process learn about the science behind them. They learn how to work with a team. Students are rewarded for their academics, teamwork, and practice in this true STEM competition.
